Really cool table. Gotta love it, you know it’s one-of-a-kind.
What are you using it for? Sofa table?
I can picture Wilma ironing Freds clothes on it.

Nice table. Last picture – I thought that was a buffing cloth on it.

does poly bring out the color as much as just oil or mineralspirts plus oil. im about to finish off a coffee table made out of a black walnut score. i want the color and resilience but not super shiny any tips?

Oil based poly will bring out the color. Water based will not. It will only bring out the color until the water dries out of the finish and then it will look just like it did before you started. I use satin oil based poly. Not shiny but brings out the color. I really like these tables. I just found a local guy selling cedar slabs that are about 14” wide with one side straight, one side with bark and about 2 1/4 thick. I’m thinking about getting some.
